ECON 54
Macroeconomic Policy Analysis: A Practitioner's Perspective Winter 2023

Class Details

This is an introduction to the analysis of macroeconomic policy issues, especially monetary, fiscal and exchange rate policy. We will focus on the data, metrics and techniques that financial markets analysts/economists use in assessing the macro conditions of countries. The goals are threefold: (1) to become familiar with some of the analytical tools used in macroeconomics, (2) to be able to understand and critique empirical macro research, and (3) to practice the writing and presentation skills used in policy analysis. The emphasis will be on practical issues, such as working with macro data, rather than on formal econometric methods.
